Cost Cutting – a cultural shift to sustainable cost base reduction (Action Insights Series Book 2)
Businesses and public sector organizations are under constant pressure to cut costs.

Can cost-base reduction become sustainable over the longer term?
This short book (Procurement & Purchasing Books) is aimed for managers and corporate decision makers, whether in the private or public sector. It poses a series of questions aimed to encourage debate and action. Cost pressures are not going to disappear any time soon, so employees at all levels need to be focused on cost.

Many business people and public sector managers are, even today, little aware of the power of game theory as a possible tool to aid planning. Whilst some consultants may excitedly push game theory as a black-art planning tool, many business people are becoming more soberly aware that a game theory analytical approach can add depth and richness to strategic planning and tactical options development – as well as giving a better picture of how other ‘players’ in the game of business may respond to our moves and counter-moves.
This short book is designed for managers and corporate decision makers, whether in the private or public sector. It poses a series of questions to encourage debate and action.
